Triple berry cobbler


A recipe for who love berries, expecially when they are incorporated into a dish and left as natural as possible. Ripe and bursting with flavor, not masked with a bunch of ingredients. 


  • Serves: 7
  • Prep time: 40 min
  • Cooking time: 35 min


  • 32 ounces strawberries, trimmed and cut in 3 pieces
  • 1 pint of blueberries, stems removed if applicable
  • 12 ounces blackberries, large ones cut in half

              To sprinkle on berries:

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • zest from 1 lemon
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Grand Marnier liquor
             For the dough:
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 4 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup cold milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • turbinado sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit degrees (180 Celsius degrees).
  • Place the berries into a medium bowl and sprinkle with sugar, zest/juice, cornstarch and ginger. Gently toss to coat the berries, then let them set for 30 minutes.
  • While the berries set, you'll prepare the dough. In a medium bowl, mix together the granulated sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and cardamom. Add the cold butter pieces and work into the flour with your fingers or a pastry blender until you have "sand-like" texture. Pour in the milk and egg and stir just until moistened and combined.
  • Stir the berries a few times, then add to your baking dish. I like to use a wide shallow baker (11x2), however a variety of casserole sizes will work. Just make sure your berries cover the bottom and come up a couple of inches in the pan. Sprinkle the grand marnier over the berries.
  • Use an ice cream scoop or spoon to place portions of dough on top of the berries (I get about 7 with my ice cream scoop).
  • Slightly flatten each portion of dough and sprinkle with a little turbinado sugar.
  • Place the cobbler in the oven and allow to bake for 30-35 minutes until the dough is golden brown.
  • Remove and allow to cool for a few minutes before serving over ice cream.
